  41. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  42. A: The most proud moment in my career, was when I recorded and produced the unplugged sessions for Alice In Chains. The reason I am so proud of this recording is that once it was captured live, there were no overdubs allowed, and after I mixed it I took it to Mastering and the mastering engineer said that it was one of the best recordings he had ever heard and there was no way to make it better. So what the listener hears is EXACTLY what I mixed and what came directly off of the console. That’s the way to do it.

  43. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  44. A: Most all other musicians and successful Producers inspire me ..... I listen to most every genre of music and an a very experienced studio engineer, so I know how to listen and have been trained by the best.
